I said a prayer for all of you today.
And know god must have     heard.
i felt  the answer in my heart.
Although he spoke no word.
I didn’t ask for wealth or fame
I knew you wouldn/t mind.
I asked him to send treasures.
of afar more lasting kind.
I asked that HE would be always near you
At the start of this NEW YEAR 2014
and each new day to grant you health and blessings
And friends to share you way.
I asked for happiness for you all
In all things great and small
But it was for is loving care
I prayed the most of all.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014
WISHING YOU A DREAM COME TRUE FOR ALL YOUR PLAN FOR THIS YEAR.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
MANY MANY GREETINGS OF THE SEASON
MY REGARDS TO ALL

Czech students and teachers regularly visit New Renato Community as part of their practical internships in Zambia. This internships are organized  through project “Strengthening the competitiveness of the Mendel University graduates in the field of development cooperation and management of natural resources in the Third World” every year.  Students successfully prepare their proposals for development projects and thesis thanks to cooperation with NRCS. They also gain unique experiences that help them in their personal development and self-realization in the labor market.
